Ullmann, Liv. CHOICES. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1984. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 193 pages. Fine/Fine. Signed.

The author's second memoir. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. The sequel to her enormously successful debut memoir, "Changing". Internationally known and loved as one of the finest film actresses the world has ever seen, the Norway-born Liv Ullmann used her fame to become UNICEF's Ambassador of Goodwill. In this role, she championed the use of breast milk, especially in developing countries, thereby incurring the ire of powerful multinational companies (primarily Nestle), which manufactured baby formulas. Her controversial and decisive role in this global campaign is modestly recounted by her, among accounts of her most personal feelings and thoughts about her loves (including the most famous one, Ingmar Bergman), her work as an actress, her daughter (Linn Ullmann, a critic and novelist), and most memorably, growing old. Youth is the most precious asset of a woman, second only to beauty, and the film business reinforces this superficial value with ruthless cruelty. Ullmann's reflections about the choices an older woman must make is the true subject of this "generous, deeply felt, and moving book". A "must-have" title for Liv Ullmann collectors. This presentation copy is prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the front free endpaper by the author: "Dear Randy and Sara - Wishing you happiness! Liv Ullmann". Liv Ullmann has a daughter by the Swedish director Ingmar Bergman, Linn Ullmann, author of "Before You Sleep". The similarity between their handwritings is simply uncanny. This title has been out-of-print for a long time and is now collectible. This is the best signed copy we have ever seen, a collector's copy. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. One of the greatest film actresses of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO LINN ULLMANN AND INGMAR BERGMAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0394539869. $50.00
